Immobile played 76 minutes but couldn't find a goal as Dortmund lost 2-1 Tuesday to Juventus in the Champions League.

Immobile has been largely frozen out in recent games but was given the opportunity against his former club in a competition in which he has already netted four times. The striker flashed a shot over in the first half but couldn't really assert himself in the clash and was replaced by Jakub Błaszczykowski with 14 minutes remaining.

Immobile worked hard but could not finish his chances Wednesday as Dortmund lost 1-0 to Augsburg.

As has been the case throughout much of the season, Immobile was certainly not lacking in effort. The Italian striker fought for every ball and made a team high of 18 tackles. However he struggled in front of gosl, his shot on target in the 80th minute being the most effective threat that he could muster. Immobile's place in the starting line-up now looks under threat, Dortmund having not scored any goals since the Bundesliga restart.

Immobile had three shots but struggled for any real clear-cut chances Saturday as Dortmund drew 0-0 with Bayer Leverkusen.

Dortmund seemed to have a lack of connection between the midfield and attacking line against Leverkusen and Immobile suffered as a result. He had a shot saved by Leverkusen's Bernd Leno either side of the break but in reality never looked a threat. He was replaced by Adrian Ramos on 81 minutes.

Immobile was ineffective and largely starved of service in Dortmund's 2-1 loss Saturday to Werder Bremen.

Following an impressive showing midweek against high-flying Wolfsburg, Immobile went into Saturday's clash in confident mood. However the Italian had scarce opportunity to flaunt his ability, a blocked header from a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cross the closest he came to finding the net. Immobile has now completed his first half-season at Dortmund having scored just three times but fans will be hoping he has a similar post-winter season to that he had at Torino last year when he netted 14 Serie A goals.

Immobile scored and got an assist in an all-round excellent display as Dortmund's 2-2 draw Wednesday with Wolfsburg.

Immobile had his best game of the season and looked a completely different player to who Dortmund fans have come to know. He worked tirelessly throughout, taking just 8 minutes to pick out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a pin-point cross and grabbing an assist. He was then denied by two fine saves from Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio before shooting narrowly wide. With 76 minutes on the clock, Immobile surged forward and scored with an excellent strike to cap off a hugely impressive performance. The forward, who also won more tackles than anyone else on the field, has finally shown why Dortmund paid 19.5 million for him in the summer.

Immobile played the full 90 minutes but failed to find the net as Dortmund lost 1-0 Saturday to Hertha Berlin.

Immobile was handed a rare start following his midweek Champions League goal but failed to capitalize on the opportunity. He was industrious and had four shots on goal including an effort well-saved by Hertha goalkeeper Thomas Kraft on 65 minutes. However he was guilty of missing a glorious opportunity late-on, heading wide when it appeared far easier to score. Despite his efforts, that crucial miss could well cost him his place next time out.

Immobile scored Dortmund's only goal as they drew 1-1 Tuesday with Anderlecht in the Champions League.

Immobile grabbed his first goal since scoring in the same competition against Galatasaray on Nov. 4. The Italian has been limited to very few appearances lately but this performance against the Belgian champions will do his confidence a world of good. Immobile finished with a superb curling shot on 58 minutes following good work by Nuri Sahin and he could have had more were it not for a couple of good saves by Anderlecht's Silvio Proto. Seemingly having found a new lease of life, Immobile will hope he gets a chance to to extend his goal-scoring streak Sunday at Hertha Berlin.

Immobile made a rare start but failed to score as Dortmund lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the Champions League Wednesday.

Immobile has had very little game time lately owing to his poor form but made his first start since the DFB Pokal win over St. Pauli. His selection was not justified however as the Italian toiled badly in attack and had little in the way of chances. Dortmund may have already qualified from the competition's group stages and so a result here wasn't essential but for Immobile it was a key chance wasted to force himself back into the team.
